WHICH PARTS OF THE RLCS DOES THIS COVER?
RLG Fantasy League covers all of RLCS Season 8 League Play (NA, EU, OCE, SAM). It does not cover Regional Championships, World Championships, or the Promotion Tournament.
Note: In Season 8, the first week of OCE occurs before Fantasy officially begins and will unfortunately not be counted.
HOW DOES SCORING WORK?
Managers earn earn points each week for the games that their players plays. Points are awarded as shown here:
- Score: 1 per Score
- Goals: 50 per Goal*
- Assists: 25 per Assist*
- Saves: 25 per Save*
- Shots: 15 per Shot
* Players in the Attacker position earn double points for their goals. Players in the Midfielder position earn double points for their assists. Players in the Defender position double points for their saves.
Example: Squishymuffinz gets 340 Score, with 2 goals, 2 saves, and 3 shots as a Forward in a game. His points for that game would be (340 + (2*50*2) + (2*25) + (3*15) = 635.
Once the points for all games a player has in a series are determined the points are divided by the number of games that player played.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PLAYER PLAYS IN TWO DIFFERENT SERIES IN A WEEK?
When a player plays two series in a week, the player earns points equal to the average of each series that they play in that week. Points from the 1st series are NOT added to the points of the 2nd series.
For instance, if a player plays twice in a week, and have 540 points in the first, then 480 in the second, their points for the week will be 510.
WHY ARE POINTS DIVIDED BY THE NUMBER OF GAMES PLAYED?
Since RLCS uses best of 5 series, not all teams play the same number of games in a season. Points are divided by number of games so that players that 3-0 their opponents are not punished in Fantasy for playing well.
WHAT HAPPENS IF ONE OF MY PLAYERS DOESN’T PLAY?
If one of your players does not play, any points earned by their substitute will be counted. If a team is forced to forfeit a match, 0 points are earned.
WHAT ARE TRANSFERS?
Transfers can be used to switch players from their current roster with other, available players within their salary cap. Each week, managers will have two transfers.

WHAT ARE LEAGUES?
By default, RLG Fantasy League lets you compare your team to every other managers’ team. It’s nice to know how you’re doing against everyone else, but what if you have a cadre of friends, and want to compete only against them.
That’s what Leagues are for.

- Click Accept next to the manager you want to accept

WHAT LEAGUE OPTIONS DO I HAVE?
Standard leagues are much like the global leaderboards, just on a far smaller scale. Groups can come together and are ranked purely based on the total score of their players. Whoever's players score the most points over the season wins!
Head To Head
Unlike standard leagues, Head to Head leagues have fixtures. Fixtures will be generated for the league at the beginning of the season. Each week you'll face off against another team in the league.
When you face off against another team in the league, you compete based on seven different statistical categories:
- Shooting Percentage
* Players in the Attacker position earn double for their goals. Players in the Midfielder position earn double for their assists. Players in the Defender position double for their saves.
Add up the amounts earned by all six of your players for each category and compare that to the number earned by opponent's players in that same category. For each category you win you earn a League Point. If your team can beat your opponent in all seven categories, you earn seven League Points. If there is a tie in a category, both managers earn a League Point. If teams are tied in League Points, regular Points (aka the ones used in Standard Leagues) are used to break ties.
The Team with the most League Points at the end of the season wins!
Example: Retals gets an average Score of 540.2 as an Attacker, with an average 321.4 Points, 0.80 Goals, 0.33 Assists, 1.20 Saves, and 2.40 Shots (for a 33.3% Shooting percentage) in his games in Week 1. Since he is an Attacker, his Goals are doubled (to 1.60). If Retals' Goals, when combined with your other five players beats your opponent's six players goals, you earn the League Point for Goals. Repeat this for Points, Score, Assists, etc... to determine who wins each category for the week.
If a player plays in more than one series in a week, their results for each category is calculated by adding the total number (of Goals, for instance), and dividing that by the number of total games they played. Note that this differs from Points, where with Points the average results for each series is averaged to determine the final number.
In the event your H2H league has an uneven number of teams, the space will be filled by a team picked by members of the Rocket League Garage team.
HOW WERE PLAYER SALARIES DETERMINED?
Players’ salaries are determined primarily through performance in the previous Season’s League play. A modifier is applied for players coming from RLRS, as the quality of opponents they faced last season is not as high as they will face in RLCS. These salaries were also modified based on feedback from an expert panel of Rocket League insiders.
